be responding? >> it is interesting. if you peel away governor romney's position, there is not a lot of different speech in him and president obama. both iran and obama believe in supporting the opposition. the administration -- but romney and obama believe in supporting the opposition. i think this administration has recognized that the most important thing we can do is create a unified political opposition so that the when the sovereign regime falls, we will have a transition as soon as possible. without a clear exit strategy, which by the way it romney said it is how he would think about military affairs, the president understands we need to keep all options on the table and be cautious about it. there are many ways to make the situation worse, rather than better. we want to get the diplomatic contacts read so that there can be a smooth transition while also -- diplomatic context so that there can be a switcsmooth transition. this administration has been at the forefront on putting pressures on the regime. i am not sure that romney will read position is that much different. >> i w

important speech the president gave in new york. host: how about mitt romney? can you assess from what you have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of the democrats, and sometimes accused democrats of being weak on a national security. in this election you have president obama, who has taken us out of iraq, president obama who has waged a very tough war against al qaeda, has gone after the al qaeda leadership, notably osama
a cartoon. mitt romney -- the u.s. should immediately bomb england. foreign policy with mitt romney. this is a cartoon that i had in my comic strip. we each have these -- i do not know. i am not sure if best and -- i promised i would not miss up your comic strip. we each do a comic strip so we are lucky as far as editorial cartoons. good to use the other side of our brands to read comics. i have been accused of making my way to political. this is my 9/11 tribute. it actually was originally a long strip. you have to turn your head to see it. i made it into an editorial cartoon. here is mitt romney having a candlelight vigil for osama bin laden. this is a cartoon i did the year after 9/11 about maybe some of the causes behind 9/11. this is also the year after 911. i call it the twin tepees. it marks the genocide that has happened. it was a reaction to some of the more excess of chest beating about 9/11. we never remember the other tragedies that have been on american soil. i do not really have anything to say about this. [laughter] i think the ladies and know what i am talking about.
of romney's chance to win? >> yeah. i think that upsurge in consumer confidence is hurting mitt romney, no question about that, ali. interestingly, i looked at the gallup data on consumer confidence and they came to a very interesting conclusion. they found that the big surge in consumer confidence on the economy was democrats. that democrats have had a huge surge where republicans have actually had a reduction in their confidence. what they found, by the way, is normally an increase in consumer confidence leads to the incumbent president doing better in the polls. they found in this case, it was the opposite. the increase in the numbers for obama and the polls has actually made democrats more optimistic about the economy. >> interesting. so, the idea of who might win the election is actually affecting the question. >> it appears so. it really does. now, look, i'm actually kind of optimistic. i like to look at this glass half full. you know, you are right that there are some signs of an economic cloud ahead, but, you know, some pretty positive signs, too. you got this trillion dollars
romney speaking of the clinton global initiative in new york was in the traditional form of american aid economic assistance are outdated in the global economy and what is really needed is trade. he has proposed a new trade organization. regardless of the specific proposal he had, what about this question of -- what exact forms of assistance are helpful? economic grants, loans, technical assistance? are we talking about free trade agreement, investment? what kind of engagement are most likely to help and descanting democracies bring about the kind of economic progress that is likely to buttress the political transition and allow them to move forward? >> during my time as secretary, we always recognize that trade is more important than aid. anything we can do to enhance trade. the principal duty of our embassies was to see if they could complete trade deals between companies in american markets over there and companies there and market here in the united states. so trade is essential. i would focus as much energy as i could on trade. at the same time, there are things you have to do befor
end. and then -- but if romney wins it, you would see them all extended. is there one that would have a better outcome in your view? >> you know, i think there's a -- there's a tension between two different things here. on the one hand, there's a sense that in the very near term with a weak overall economic performance continuing that raising levels of taxes wherever in the distribution may have some negative effects on economic growth. and then there's a harder long-term question, frankly, which is how tax rates on capital gains, on dividends which feed through a somewhat complicated channel by encouraging various kinds of saving activity and ultimately lowering the cost of capital to businesses and encouraging investment, how that translates into long-term economic growth. that is frankly a difficult chain to try to measure in any precise way, and consequently it's harder to be able to trace through the quantitative impacts on growth to follow through on channels for that. >> to follow-up on that, which plan, do you think it's problematic for the economy at this point to have taxes

% that we heard about this week. governor romney, in some remarks that were taped at a fundraiser earlier this year, talked about how there's 47% of the country that does not pay federal income tax. he said that they believe they are victims who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it. governor kaine, there's over a million virginians who fall into the category of not paying a federal income tax, part of that 47%. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think more generally about whether too many virginians, too many americans by extension are too dependent on government for basic needs in their lifesome. kaine: david, i heard those statements, and i -- you can say something off the cuff that you regret, but i really deeply disagree with the sentiment expressed by governor romney. i don't meet virginians who think they're victims, and the notion that they need to have people take personal responsibility for them is, frankly, con desending and divisive

"politico" this morning. here's the headline. wall street braces for an obama win. mitt romney was wall street candidate committed to lower taxes and less regulation would never rip anchor says fatcats as president barack obama famously did. many masters of the universe can see they may not get their man to wall street in the broader landscape of corporate america even strong supporters of romney acknowledged a swing state polling numbers in the direction of economic data and market suggests it is time to brace for a second obama term. i want to ask you about using the word grace in this story. >> yeah, i mean, i think that the president has had an antagonistic relationship with business. i think that is pretty clear. and so, he did over the last several months i think lose the independent vote and certainly the business vote. and so, if the numbers show he's actually winning, i could understand that now they are disappointed because they were counting on some competition. but i don't think you can really tell right now. i mean, it is hard to know how accurate these polls are. in some c

candidate mitt romney spoke at an annual global development conference hosted by bill clinton. he spoke about the recent attack on the american consulate in libya. here is a look. >> for american foreign aid to be more effective if it has got to embrace the principles that you see in these global initiatives. the power of partnerships, access to the trans formative nature of free enterprise and no leverage of the abundant resources that come in the private sector. i believe there are three legitimate object of foreign aid in this country. first is to address humanitarian needs such as the case of medical treatment to millions suffering from hiv aids. second is to foster a substantial united states strategic interests. perhaps military or diplomatic or economic. third is another purpose and one that i think has to receive much more attention and higher priority. in a romney administration and that is aid that elevates people and brings about lasting change in communities and nations. here is an example. a lot of americans including myself are troubled by developments in the middle east.
discussed would offer opportunities for governor romney or president obama to score political points. and what that argument might sound like on these issues. is there any chance that either of them will try to do something like this? >> i think it would be a reference back. because the economy takes all the oxygen out of the election with a little bit of foreign affairs, the supreme court does not play against undecided voters. it is a motivator to get out and get to the polls. you want this person to replace justice ginsberg when she retires for example. you want to know if there's any practical experience, and the obama at the lustration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. present romney might decide he would defend the constitutionality of that statute. it does seem like that has a lot of salience and presidential debates. i.t. think it will not happen. here is why. no major national political figure has attacked as publicly since 1996 or before. it is remarkable. the republicans were seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action given the polls. th
